Ernie
BIRTHDAY: JANUARY 28

Ernie, the outgoing foil to the more serious and responsible Bert, is great at explaining things, but can sometimes be a bit too smart for his own good. Ernie talks himself into some tight corners, and often falls prey to his own jokes, yet his free-spirited approach to his successes and failures makes him one of Sesame Street’s most enduring and likeable characters. Ernie loves playing with his rubber duckie, playing tricks on Bert and playing the saxophone.
